Protein Pancakes

We love breakfast. Most of the time we’re your typical bacon, eggs, and toast kinda’ people. But every once in a while we’ll say, “screw it!” and go for a big, fat waffle or sky high stack of pancakes and feel like total crap afterwards. 

So when we’re training, and it’s the kind of day where we have zero self-control, we try to have healthier versions of the unhealthy stuff to binge on.

Crionna Tobin, a friend of ours who is also a performance nutritionist from Ireland, gave us this recipe and we love it! A serving of these bad boys contains 17g of protein.

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 banana 
  • 1/2 cup milk (or dairy free substitute)
  • 3 tbsp. coconut flour
  • 3 tbsp. oats
  • 1 tbsp. ground flax seed
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp. walnuts, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. coconut flakes, unsweetened
  • 1/2 scoop protein powder (optional)

 

Instructions

  1. Put all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Cook in a pan as usual and serve plain (yes, they are that good), or with your favorite toppings. Some of our favorites are:

- fresh berries with a sprinkle of hemp and chia seeds

- maple syrup and fresh sliced bananas with a sprinkle of cinnamon

Makes about 10 mini pancakes.
